Description: The Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) is a family of light multi-purpose vehicles designed as a replacement for the US Army and US Marine Corps HMMWV vehicles having greater payload and higher survivability. Furthermore, JLTV will provide power supply for on-board and outside components while the engine is on or during extended silent watch. Additional requirements include: network-enabled, air transportability, high mobility and affordability. After 2010 only AM General, Lockheed Martin and Oshkosh Defense were bidding for the JLTV program. All in, the JLTV may represent the procurement of 55,000 tactical vehicles from 2016 through 2040 worth $30 billion. As of August 2015, the US Army has a requirement for 49,100 vehicles and the US Marine Corps may need 5,500 units.

The original JLTV program family comprised five variants: the Combat Tactical Variant, the Command and Control Variant, the Utility Variant, the Light Infantry Squad Carrier Variant and the Reconnaissance Variant. The basic designs included armor and provisions to accommodate add-on armor to achieve higher levels of protection. It was said that more than 160,000 JLTVs were to be needed in the next 20 years to replace the Humvees. As of early 2008, the industry teams competing for the US military JLTV program were: AM General and General Dynamics; Lockheed Martin and Alcoa; Boeing and Textron; Northrop Grumman and Oshkosh; BAE Systems and Navistar International Corporation; and Force Protection and DRS Technologies.
